  Old  So much spam on my WP site

My site - www.kruptonline.com

It was dead for 4 months, redoing it now and it has 8000 comments awaiting moderation and all are spam.

I can't seem to find something where I can reset. I can't bulk coz it is taking ages to load all that crap.

Is there something I can do to just remove them all? The comments

Ye there's a spam plugin for wordpress although i've forgotten what its called. It basically auto deletes things u mark as spam and learns to delete them in the future.

U'll be able to find it on www.wordpress.org underneath the plugins section.

There must be like a database where all these comments are - "waiting for moderation"

Where i can either simply delete the file or something?
